Next month (October) the The Arts Society Isle of Wight At Quay Arts (formerly the Vectis Decorative and Fine Arts Society) begin their 2018-19 season of art lectures on the Island.

The first lecture of the season (18th October) welcomes Douglas Skeggs for his lecture titled, “The artists of Montmarte – The Pilgrims of Babylon”

There is no more evocative of Bohemian life than Montmartre.

The garden cafes, dancehalls, caberats and studios of Montmartre became the inspiration to some of France’s greatest artists.
